Tesla sold 367,500 cars in 2019: its best year ever. Powered by the flagship Model 3 sedan, these sales outnumber Tesla’s sales from 2018 and 2017 combined. On top of that, Tesla also unveiled the Model Y and the Cybertruck, which will further bolster its fleet of electric vehicles. The Cybertruck's debut, though, did not go exactly according to plan. Tesla founder Elon Musk tried to show the world how shatterproof the truck’s windows were, only to crack them.
The Cybertruck snafu seems trivial, but it’s emblematic of how often Tesla cars seem to malfunction. Indeed, Tesla vehicles have been subjected to myriad recalls over the years, and Tesla’s Autopilot system has been linked to several fatal crashes. Some wonder if these cars should be on the road at all.
